    They obviously aren't fighting alongside them, but do they have autobot markings on them? Do you think they'll join the main crew later?

    Grimlock is sporting an Autobot sigil on his chest in the most recent episode.

    Technicaly yes, but like the G1 Dinos they don't like Optimus Prime.

    They are probably considered as neutrals at best if anything at all by the Autobots for now, Autobot insignia or not. They will probably become Autobot members, or official allies at least later...

    They're Autobots, but they're extremely stupid and aggresive, so they're basically the Loose Cannon Trio.

    Well the breakdown of the Autobots currently are three teams.

    The Elite, the B-squad (Optimus' crew), the irregulars (Dinobots).

    The newborn bots will be split down the middle. Constructicons for the Decepticons, Wreckgar and Blurr for the Autobots.

    Megatron really needs to recruit the Cons on Earth namely Lockdown, Blackarchnia and Soundwave.

    Starscream is on his own for now. Though I wouldn't make it past him making an alliance with Powell and the B list villains of Detroit.

    They'll probably team up with the Autobots in the season 2 two part finale.

    It's a different angle than the G1 versions of the Dinobots.

    G1 Dinobots = originally "weapons" that were stored and locked up, usually in a hibernation mode because they were too dangerous, wasn't until post-movie that they were "freed" from their little prison, but they became dumb AND clumsy instead of just dumb.

    Animated = too dangerous to have around, very aggressive and untrusting (like most wild animals). Have yet to prove they can be trusted allies, or allies at all.

    I enjoy the Animated style more than the G1 style.

    The dinobots weren't locked up that long. They got a whole island to play around on during the second season.

    QFT. Animated style = more humane way on treating the mentally and linguistically-challenged bots like the Dinobots.

    Yes they are...just that they are kind of useless at the moment...only Prowl can control/persuade them...and even that is hit or miss at best...

    I know that they are supposed to team-up at some point during season 2, but there is nothing that proves that they will remain with the Autobots after said team-up. I think the Autobot symbol on his chest in the last episode is only there because his toy has it. They won't be official Autobots until we see something in the cartoon that proves this.

    In the show they are not autobots. What I find odd is that no one in the show has said anything about Grimlock having an autobot symbol on him. As for why he has the symbol, perhaps the allspark gave it to them because it was autobot energy that created the emp blast?
